Jettainer is strengthening its foothold in the Asia-Pacific region. The ULD management company has appointed Edward Neo as its new general manager for sales APAC. He has been catering to the needs of customers in the region from his base in Singapore since December 1.
Edward Neo has over 20 years of sales experience in a number of industries and in the Asia-Pacific region. The trained mechanical engineer last worked in the aviation industry at Safran Electronics & Defence Services Asia Pte Ltd/SEDSA and at SITA Incorporated Networking Corporation (Asia Pacific) Pte Ltd. He was in charge of sales for maintenance, repair and overhaul solutions (MRO) for the SouthEast Asia and Oceania region at Safran Electronics & Defence Services and supported a variety of airlines in improving and making their flight operations more efficient.
Neo worked as an account executive at SITA up until 2016 and successfully implemented a check-in system at Changi Airport Group from Singapore.
“It is important to understand the processes and challenges facing airlines to develop exactly the creative and customised solutions that they need. Successful sales thrives on always being a sounding board for your customer. I am really looking forward to my upcoming role at Jettainer and to the many opportunities for us to make Asian-Pacific aviation even more efficient with our diverse and top-class range of ULD management services,” said Edward Neo, Jettainer’s general manager sales APAC.
Thomas Sonntag, Jettainer’s managing director, also sees that the region offers huge potential: “By bringing Edward Neo on board, we have gained an international sales expert who not only has an excellent network in the aviation business, but also someone who always keeps an eye on what our customers need. I am confident that we will continue growing our business in the Asia-Pacific region with his expertise.”
